A Galentine’s Day Valentine’s Day Party


I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day (case and point here, here, here and here), but when Annette, Rachael and I decided to throw a little GALentine’s party, I couldn’t say no.  In true Jamie form, I’m clearly telling an inappropriate story in the above photo, but I had to share this pic because I LOVE our real smiles/laughs.  Isn’t that was a GALentine’s party is all about?  Body part stories aside, we did manage to get some great photos, so let us know what you think in the comments below…and have a happy Valentine’s Day.


Pouring the bubbly. We used Sophia Coppola’s super girly Blanc de Blanc


Of course, I made sure we were all properly red-lipped


Pink donuts of all sizes to bite on
